Anyone who has ever camped here especially in the middle of the campground, sites 18-33, you know that the hill goes straight up on the opposite of the river, so how in the world did 12 cows make it down the hill tumbling into the river, only to float away. No one will ever know!
Scott (the wonderful son-in-law!) was working in the grounds when he heard a noise. A strange noise like something large was coming down the hill. At first he thought the deer were crossing the river or maybe Big Foot was finally going to show himself here or maybe it is the spirit that has been chasing Luke (the helper bee) around the campground the last couple of weeks.
Nope it was 12 cows plunk plunk plunk into the river.
In case a missing cow report had been filed, Scott called the Holmes County Sheriff’s Department to report that 12 cows were swimming down the Mohican River. The river was alittle bit on the high side and the cows didn’t even have on their life jackets! The Sheriff’s Department asked Scott if he knew whose cows they were. No, Scott said, that is why he was calling the Sheriff’s Department. He called a farmer who lives a few miles away from here on top of the hill but got no answer. So the mystery of the cows continued until today when Scott finally told me the cow story and I said well we have to post this to Facebook to see if anyone knows where the cows came from.
Social Media is a crazy thing. As I am writing this blog, the video was posted to Facebook. It was liked and shared multiple times in a matter of a couple of hours and the mystery of the cows is slowing unraveling. We still do not know who the cows belong to, but from what we understand they were rounded up and are safe.
My sister’s dog ran away a couple years ago and through the power of Facebook the dog was found.
Lost cows, lost pets, lost people the power of social media is unreal! Social Media is the quickest way to get the word out. Amber Alerts, Silver Alerts and Missing Person alerts I hope that anyone who is in that situation posts there first because it is crazy how quick a post can become viral.
As I get more information about the cows I will keep you posted. Maybe I can get an interview with the lead cow as to why it led it’s herd down that path.
The moral to this story always know the path you are going down because you never know where it might take you!
